    Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals to help Real Madrid defeat Chelsea at Sun Life Stadium Wednesday night, but both were overshadowed by a fan who ran onto the pitch during the second half to give the Portuguese striker a hug.

    Midway through the second half, the fan (wearing a Ronaldo jersey) managed to get onto the field and approached Ronaldo. He wrapped his arms around Ronaldo and whispered a few sweet nothings into his ear.

    Ronaldo patiently listened to the fan and even hugged him back, giving stadium security time to catch up to the fan and escort him off the pitch.

    The fan, Ronaldo Gjoka, was arrested for trespassing and disorderly conduct, according to the incident report released by the Miami-Dade Police Department Thursday. Gjoka is a 19-year-old student from Lake Worth.
